Ferns made me think of ideas!

Have you ever walked in the woods in spring and noticed the ferns? They’re coiled, so tight that their new offspring leaves look like tiny fists.

Little hands gripping secrets.

And then, slowly, warmed by the sun they gradually, oh so gradually, unfurl.

The tight little fists of the ferns unfurl into leaves.

Until the creation is complete.

Just as our minds unfurl their ideas into creations and some of us create books!

    1. That New Zealand fern is a beauty. In their way the fern family is just as beautiful as flowers. I must keep an eye out for other varieties! πŸ™‚


  1. oh, i love this take on ferns, Jude. beautiful images – and a brilliant analogy! isn’t that just how it is. thanks for sharing.
    trust you are well. i have been somewhat absent lately as life in the real world has been quite busy with vacation time and a bit of travel…. but just wanted to stop by and say hello. πŸ™‚


    1. Hey Chris, good to hear from you. I guessed you were busy, and wondered if it was with books. The real world sometimes really gets in the way! As long as you’re enjoying life that’s the main thing. Really pleased that you understood the fern analogy! It’s the way I think but not everyone thinks that way! πŸ™‚
